The Legal Services Corporation (“LSC”) has initiated a rulemaking to consider revisions to 45 CFR Part 1606, Termination and Debarment Procedures; Recompetition, and 45 CFR Part 1623, Suspension.

Under the LSC Rulemaking Protocol:

Rulemaking Workshops [enable LSC staff to meet with stakeholders] to discuss, but not negotiate, LSC rules and regulations. * * * The Workshop will be a meeting at which the participants hold open discussions designed to elicit information about problems or concerns with the regulation (or certain aspects thereof) and provide an opportunity for sharing ideas regarding how to address those issues. The Workshop is not intended [to] develop detailed alternatives or to obtain consensus on regulatory proposals.

67 FR 69762, 69763 (November 19, 2002).

With this notice, LSC is inviting expressions of interest from the interested stakeholder community to participate in the Rulemaking Workshop. Expressions of interest should be forwarded in writing to Victor M. Fortuno, Vice President & General Counsel, Legal Services Corporation, via e-mail to vfortuno@lsc.gov or via fax to 202-337-6831.
